I visited Medieval Times with my son and brought my camera with me.

Lighting was very bad and difficult to work with even with fast lens - I wished I had a camera with ISO 3200 and acceptable noise levels at it - here are my best ones:

They are straight off the camera:

I think your white balance is off on all of these shots. They're not bad, but I wouldn't post the blurry ones (#2, 3).

I know and I left it intentionally so - the plot was implying that the fighting happening at night time under the moonlight.

Regarding the blurr - I wish it was not everythere, I agree, but I still would shoot it both ways - to imply the motion by trying to pan and to freeze the frame
I will post couple with corrected WB and while they look more exact in terms of color, they don't have the same mood IMHO

Ah I see what you mean by fighting under the moonlight. That works then I think.

Yeah, sometimes it's hard to get it perfect when you're panning. You're so close on #2. It looks like his leg is in focus but not his face. So close! :)

Trying to focus on the rider would be tough as the horse isn't going in a straight line...he's also going up & down slightly. That makes it kinda tough.

The fighting shots look good.
